Great Lakes Brewing Co. and Hoppin' Frog Brewery returned to RateBeer's annual list of the 100 Top Brewers in the World. But another perennial top brewer from Ohio did not. Jackie O's Pub & Brewery didn't make the cut this year
The list, based on online reviews done by beer drinkers, was released today (Feb. 7). Unlike previous years, RateBeer didn't rank the top brewers outside of the top five. The top five (in order) were: AleSmith, Hill Farmstead, Three Floyds, Russian River and Bells.
Last year, Hoppin' Frog, located in Akron, was 17th and Great Lakes, from Cleveland, was 35th. Jackie O's, located in Athens, was 97th.
